Egypt’s infrastructure investment needs are large and cannot be met on a business as usual basis. According to the G20’s Global Infrastructure Outlook, Egypt will require US$675 billion of investment over the next 20 years to meet their infrastructure needs.
The report identifies opportunities and constraints to expanding commercial finance and private investment to achieve sustainable infrastructure development across key sectors. It focuses on four priority sectors selected by the Government of Egypt, namely:
- Energy: oil and gas transmission, distribution; electricity generation, transmission, and distribution;
- Transport: multi-modal freight transport and logistics, including ports, airports, railways and inland waterways, and related logistics infrastructure; urban transport in the Greater Cairo Metropolitan Area (GCMA);
- Water and sanitation: bulk water supply, distribution, and wastewater treatment;
- Agriculture: value addition and transformation, enhanced efficiency of value chains and sustainable water and land resource management.
